    Keep looking, they are available. I bought mine at my local Best Buy a week ago - the last one they had.

    My wife liked my Evo so much that she wanted one too (she hadn't upgraded her phone for three years...) that we went back 2 days ago and they still didn't have any more. The manager called around to the local stores and one of them still had 6 in stock (two closer stores were out also). A 10 mile drive later and my wife had her Evo also.

    why would you get them from sprint and have to deal w/ mail in rebates?

    I figure I'd have a better chance of getting the latest batch with the screen issues and all that fixed by getting it direct. I also have a corporate account and have to modify my contract via someone on the corporate end, and not in a store

    Go to Best Buys website, pick "locations" and start calling the closest one. I ended up going to the 4th one and it was worth it. No rebates to hassle with and they usually know more about Sprint's plans and phones than any Sprint employee.
    IT'S WORTH IT.

    I just joined Sprint a few weeks ago so I'm in the 30 day timeframe to return my original phone. I was told that I had to go through Sprint or a Sprint store and not BB or RS since I was such a new customer.

    If you bought it at bb or rs then you return to those locations. Sprint stores or online will not take returns from other retailers.

    Yea.. Mine is actually an old employee account thats been highly modified over the years. So I can only deal with the corporate guys who have the access to do the same for my new contract.

    I actually got the original phone from Sprint. Since they are evo-less right now, I thought I'd try rs or bb. Sprint says no problem, rs and bb say I'd lose my # and I can't do that. Don't know who to believe!

    The person here who is in charge of our Sprint Account called in to complain about her HTC Evo about 2 weeks ago because her battery kept having issues, she had a palm pre previouslly and because she called in and complained they gave us free mobile hotspot on our 3 evo lines and some sort of discount that saved us $200. Supposively from what she told me, the rep told her they have a new deal that's better than the simply everything plan. But idk if it was BS to keep her business. but hey, now i have free hotspot.

    I've been trying the local BB and Radio Shack here and havent found any. I'm actually thinking about pre-ordering the white one just to get an Evo. Could care less about the back cover at this point.

    Have you tried calling sprint and ordering it through them? I called and upgraded from my pre 3 weeks ago and got my phone in the mail 2 days later

    Last time I checked EVOs at Sprint were on back order. I called in to check where I stood on my replacement. They told me that I was about #27 out of 35 on the list for my area.

    Hey, on a fluke I decided to call the local Best Buy's to see if they had any in, and they did. The guy told me they weren't necessarily allowed to advertise that they had more (not sure why). I was supposed to get my upgrade 7/1 and all this happened on 6/26. I knew they weren't going to be able to keep them in stock that long (when the guy told me he had 3, and I said I'd come in the next day, he actually laughed), so after a friendly chat with Sprint's National Sales Department, they let me upgrade early.
    You never know, you might get lucky and your local BB might have them.

    I got mine the same way. Just on a whim, I started calling Radio Shack and BB's around me to see if they had one. RS had one left and he held it for me. He said they've been getting 4-6 Evo's a week pretty steadily.

    Has anyone gotten them through RS / BB & still got the resign discount? If i go through sprint i get $150 off for sticking with them, but really don't want to give that up just to get it a bit sooner than through a Sprint store or site.

    ~Thanks in advance.

    You will be able to get the same upgrade discounts regardless of where you buy the phone (Sprint, RS, BB). The big difference is not having to deal with MIR through Sprint when you go through BB or RS.

    WOW, thanks so much for the heads up. When i was upgrading to the Pre last year i thought they said they couldn't give me the discount. Gives me alot more options for upgrade July 1st now.

    ~Thanks again!
